to a restaurant serving dhol, being able to stay open from 7 am to+ç 11 pm seven days a week. the marina green is used by hundreds of little kids from all over the city to play soccer. making it efacto the largest playground in the city. it has always been the city's policy not to allow alcohol in a public playground. these kids have not shelter from the weather, or restroom facilities. a much more sensitive use to the environment and community would be to use the degaussing station as a clubhouse for the kids so they have shelter, restroom facilities, and a place to store their equipment. if rec and park doesn't want to pay for it, even though they just received about $200 million, i would be willing to fund it myself as a contribution to the city. i'm looking for six votes here. who want to put the environment and the welfare of the children ahead of the dollars of a restaurant lease. do the right thing. and vote against this restaurant lease on december 4. and with all due respect, supervisor farrell, i ask you again, with the association, with the hospitality industry, and$á( mz your own

on the marina greens area, i'm not sure, and they can also look at that, but the building itself, it has retrofit and as they're tearing at all the pieces, i would have liked to propose that there be external facade which mimics or by the columns, the external of the building where they want to open up that part would be pentagonal and you can build on top of it, an upper altar with that type of architect and you can have a walkway over the top, but the porn part -- important part is sto have the external structures stabilize to the seismic retrofit. if you look at it that way, you retain the elegance of the high [inaudible] and you also keep the work that's already in progress. i'd like to see it more incorporated into it and if they want to do a palace, that's what the marina green is for. >> thank you. >> paul? >> good morning, my name is paul manning, i'm a vice chairman of the harbor tenant's association and i was also part of the advisory commitment with the early stages of getting the renovation completed or planned and moving forward, i'm happy to see it has come forward in quit

. this is regarding changing degaussing station at marina green to the fish and chip restaurant and to me just like putting a hot dog stand at half storm in yosemite. it destroyed the nature. i've been walking by this place, by degaus station, for 21 years. like a gal pus island. all the bears, migratory bears, sitting on a roof. and it's such a magnificent waterfront. and changing this waterfront to the commercial restaurant is not right. besides, hundreds of kids, they play soccer on saturday, and they need parking. most of the time, the mother, they cannot find the parking, and they circle and circle. and they draw -- they just park in our driveway. so that cause a lot of trouble parking, plus the serving alcohol next to the playground, and marina green is the largest playground in the city, especially on thursday, friday, saturday. and having alcohol serve next to these kids is not fair. let's -- keep marina green like a park for everybody to enjoy, and let's notjp8a commercializet like new york central park. thankskm%( sms for voting no to degaussing -- to change degaussing station to fish and

there at the marina green and see how we could get people comfortable with this option. we tested the e line, historic streetcar and the waterfront from mission bay to fisherman's wharf. it is a streetcar with challenges to operate but we know what the challenges are and meeting with the engineers with the nta to figure out how we can sustain the e line not just for special event but for round the clock service. we also paid attention to details like pedestrian safety, way finding, helping visitors find their way around the waterfront. a quick fix, stapling a few signs to a post, but what was so important about that, we used real time information that gave people choices that if they were to walk from the ferry building to the ballpark or from the ferry building to marina green, we could get them time options and show them where milestones were along the way. we also did the same with the bicycle network as our bike network expands. and with that we knew we were starting from -- with the community, a lot of the people already worked with us to roll our sleeves up and say let's get beyond america's cup
